Former sparring partner to Conor McGregor Chris Van Heerden giving him huge respect & props. For his odds defying performance against Floyd Mayweather. Van Herden joined a chorus of boxers before the fight stating that he felt McGregor would not be able to hang with the p4p great. But, surprisingly to him, he did very well and Chris never saw the fight possibly going for full ten rounds. He was even surprised by some of the shots Conor was able to pull off as Mayweather came marching forward.
